Dougle County East-West trail at Daniels Park

We were south of the Denver metro for this trail run. The location that we got on this trail is certainly off the main path. It's in Circle Pines, south of Denver about 45 minutes. We also had to take some small back county gravel roads to get to the parking lot and shelter (Grigs Road Pavilion). From there we ran about 4 miles along a ridge with visibility for miles. Along the way, there was also a display that talked about the history of the region and had a map of the peaks that could be seen from that vantage point. It was a little overcast this day, but the air was still fresh and the running was great.

Here are some of the views from the trail run:
